Pinhole Photography Workshop 

Saturday 25 October
 
11:00 to 4pm 
 
£15
 
Photography does not require expensive cameras - this workshop offers an opportunity to make your own pinhole camera using recycled materials and photograph using this camera in the area surrounding the gallery. Using simply daylight and chemicals to make negative images that you can process during the course of the workshop. 
 
Historic Portrait Studio

Saturday 22 November

10:00 to 4:00

£5, drop-in.

A unique chance to make a portrait of yourself with photographer Jo Gane.  Using antique brass and wood cameras and the 19th century technique of wet collodian photography she will take your portrait and produce a one-off ambrotype image on metal. Put the magic back in the photography by taking part in the mysterious process that produces a distinctive portrait for you to keep.
